Come and get a free King Brussels Sticker!

18 November, 2019: Courtesy of King Brussels himself, and with a little help from Alana (sp?) at Brattle Square Optical. We ordered a couple thousand of these really pretty oversized laptop stickers from Sticker Mule, but they never showed up to the HUB. Chris and the team were tearing apart the HUB looking. Later we realized that they’d been sent… Read More

Greens were not blockbuster

13 November, 2019: This is Caroline from Kitchen Garden Farm tapping her cabbage to see if it was ready to harvest for our greens salads. But wait: if you’ve been reading since the beginning you might have remembered us claiming with great gusto that we’d never have greens salads at Clover. So what’s up? We’ve been committed to salads sans… Read More

Free cranberry lemonade from King Brussels

11 November, 2019: King Brussels has been busy. Last week he changed all the music to Elvis. This week he’s decreeing that everyone at Clover who uses the Clover App gets a free cranberry lemonade, no purchase necessary! Cranberries from Carver, MA; a little bit of sugar; Clover-squeezed lemons. If you’re on the Clover App, you should see a note from… Read More

Staining wood floors

7 November, 2019: Things are coming along at Boylston. Justin Kelly and his team have been working round the clock and it’s starting to look like a Clover in there, aside from the thin layer of construction dust that covers every surface. We’re hoping to announce an open date soon. CloverBBY will have a communal table just like all the… Read More

Tomorrow’s Thanksgiving Mushroom seems like a new sandwich but…

6 November, 2019: It’s actually a take on a sandwich we had on the menu back in 2010. Ayr’s dad used to make a mushroom pâté, baked in a fancy French pastry crust. We made our own version, and called it a mushroom loaf. Back when I ran Sunday prep, before we had our own commissary, I remember making duxelles and… Read More

Why is there Elvis playing in my restaurant?

6 November, 2019: Get it? King of Rock? King of Sandwiches? Enjoy some Elvis while you munch on your (King) Brussels Sprout Sandwich today at lunch. We’ve abandoned our admittedly repetitive playlists (sorry staff and customers that we made you listen to Mr. Postman a million times!) and are testing out a service called RX Music. They can make custom… Read More

Burning carrots

6 November, 2019: Our carrot sandwich/Paul’s take on Buffalo Chicken is back. It’ll show up on the menu today at lunch if you’re on the Clover app, Thursday if not. We are using the first delivery of carrots from Michael Docter at Winter Moon Roots. These are straight out of the ground and haven’t been stored in the famous barn yet.… Read More

Alien invasion

5 November, 2019: The shipment of Paw Paw doesn’t even fit in one picture! Chris just told us 2019 will go down in history as a banner year for paw paw in Massachusetts, which makes us happy because usually it’s a very short-lived treat. If you haven’t gotten a chance to taste this alien-looking (yet entirely local) fruit, get over… Read More

Meet King Brussels

23 October, 2019: Ayr texted us a month or so ago with a crazy idea about King Brussels. I tried to ignore it, but visions of the king started creeping into my dreams and sketchpad. And now here we are. The reason? The Brussels Sprout Sandwich returns tomorrow (it’s secretly here today, if you’re on the app.) The King has… Read More

This humble blog gets a bigger viewership

29 September, 2019: I think this was Jane’s idea. It was a really awesome one. Print big poster versions of blog posts and put them up in the window of the Boylston store while construction happens. So we’ve been writing posts on this blog that are doing double-duty as window art/Clover manifestos. We’re trying to focus on bigger themes, Jane has… Read More
